Promposals are often a highlight of the senior year of high school and a thoughtful way to ask someone to prom. From flashing an eye-catching poster during the middle of lunch to simply asking someone after class, promposals can be a rite of passage for many seniors, and several people are in favor of them.

“[My dream promposal] is to have four floating lanterns like from the Disney movie “Tangled” that spell P-R-O-M with some flower petals. I love promposals, and everyone should have one at least once in their life,” said senior Victoria DeCasas.

However, others believe that promposals are not as significant as they may seem.

“[My favorite part of prom is not the promposal] because I’m going to have fun, and I’m not into the whole dating thing,” said senior Benjamin Yeargin.

Some even feel that promposals are not all that they are chalked up to be.

“Promposals are a good idea generally in theory, but don’t get so worked up about it if it’s not what you expect it to be,” said sophomore Enoch Orozco.

Often, promposals can be viewed as too excessive for the occasion.

“Promposals are too over the top; it’s just prom, you’re not going to get married. [I feel like when the guy promposes] he is scared because no matter who you are, you will always have a fear of rejection,” said junior Hannah Chambers.

Even though there is a low chance that one would be rejected during a promposal, people should always consider the possibility.

“If someone asked me to prom and I did not want to go with that person, I would be like, ‘That’s sweet of you to ask, but I already promised to go with someone else,’” said junior Kendall Dumit.

Nonetheless, prom is often viewed as a memorable, thoughtful experience that can create or sustain relationships with people that are in our lives.

“Sometimes [a promposal paves the way for a more serious relationship], but sometimes it improves or creates one. I view it as a first date, an opportunity to go on another date, or a way to create a relationship,” said senior Rachel Etwaru.
